I have no problems with what Oprah did. I think that it is wonderful. It was what she said in an interview with the press. When Asked the stupid question, why the majority of the girls were black (with the exception of one girl). It wasn't the question that bothered me, it wasn't the fact that it was true that bothered me...I mean, duh, your in South Africa, The majority of english there are wealthy. It was Oprah's response..."I don't feel I need to appease the white people of this country". It is those types of typical responses from Oprah that makes me feel, I really don't like her.
Maybe this is the 'typical white' response, but this is how I feel. I don't understand why celebrities are constantly going out of the country to try to make a difference. Oprah gave everyone in her audience new cars once. Why could that money not have gone to an orphanage? Why could she not of opened a school here as well, she is rich enough? It's not like the children of our country choose to be poor. If you do some research, there are children in this country just as poor and living in dirt like the children in some 3rd world countries. I would just like the charities among celebrities to even out a little. I understand the need to do good in this world and if I had the money I would do the same, but maybe spend some here on the homefront as well.
